The EP's a truly international affair, as Italy's Moonwalk, Switzerland's Definition and the UK's Thomas Gandey join forces

Definition:Music’s 60th release is a rather special one. Both tracks are absolute tech-funk nuggets and feature vocals by Thomas Gandey, who's really delivered the goods, and both are destined to make you get your groove on, whenever and wherever you hear them.

First up is is Vision, which starts with a muted kickdrum and vocal pads and neatly develops with an arpeggiated synth line and electro percussion sounds until the distorted bassline kicks in, by which point the track is well on its way in a dubby, funked-up kind of way. It's extremely infectious, and is helped further by the laidback vocals, which are kept minimal to fit in with the ethos of the song.

Capricorn is an altogether different beast: funky and dramatic from the offset, with a pumping funky tech-house backbeat and a vocal which, although sung in a laidback style, takes centre stage in a track that makes you want to hit the dancefloor as fast as possible. It's the kind of track that you could use in a main set to great effect, or as the one that fills the dancefloor at the end of a crowd-teasing warm-up.

Picking my favourite of the two is a no brainer: Capricorn is a track that I can see mtyself playing for many months to come and has all the makings of a future classic. That said, Vision is pretty damn good, too - hence the high mark overall!
